Using breathing techniques has been extremely helpful in my daily use. Recently I had to have a MRI done and the machine broke down in the middle of my test, and my normal reaction was panic. I quickly remembered that these are the times that I could use the breathing techniques that I had been taught by Nina. I calmly began breathing in through the nose holding the breath and slowly releasing the breath from my mouth, I repeated this over and over until I realized I was concentrating on my refreshed breathing and not the stress that I was finding myself under.
